As I have predicted, lo and behold: the release date of 8.1.5. is March 12.
It is a perfect timing to spend a couple of weeks in full Dazar’Alor to farm more items and reduce my raiding time further on. Since March 13, my gameplay will be yet again split between raiding and leveling – I think I leave the raiding for weekends, and leveling goes into my shorter morning sessions on workdays.
I have a Nightborne warrior which I am and will be playing in both Protection and Arms – depending on my mood and situation. Arms spec is ok, albeit not as convenient as Fearella’s Fury. In Protection I feel myself like a fish in the water, yet I’m not always eager to tank. I have no idea how Protection now feels in the field: Arkeona has never left Orgrimmar by her 62!
I am not anticipating Zandalari – at least normal Darkpear Trolls have pleasant faces, but these are just scary. What I crave for are Kul Tirans.
Blizzard has added more tuning options this week. Kul Tiran males have got a beard option:
I think if you roll a Kul Tiran male, a beard or whiskers are a must have option. Without it they look like grim thugs.
Kul Tiran females have got a whole range of earrings and necklaces:
With my all-feminine roster, this is no exception: I am rolling a Kul Tiran girl. Let’s reconsider the Kul Tiran class options:
My choice will bounce between a druid, a monk or a rogue – all leathers. As you know, I’m not a fan of druid shapeshifting, and only the wicker form fantasy may lure me into it. A Cat is not an option, Balance doesn’t play well thematically with Kul Tirans. But I can easily imagine a Thornspeaker healer or a Mama Bear. Still, if I ever want a druid again, I am inclined to a Balance Darskpear troll.
Monk is an attractive option because a Brewmaster will be simply amazing, and I could switch to a caster Mistweaver too if I feel like I need a calmer personality. I guess that Windwalker would feel a bit awkward :)
For my main rogue I previously switched from always-Assassination into Subtlety due to CD issues. In Legion Assassination felt like I always waited for cooldowns instead of fighting. I might try it with a Kul Tiran again in BfA, but the major rogue option lure here is of course the piratic Outlaw. I’ve never played it too much as it seems simplistic and boring albeit flashy – but who knows, maybe it will be exactly the option for the race.
As always, a trial character would solve it all and ruin all my plans :)
